KoithimThe only reason why scalpers exists is because ppl are buying from them. :(
notarjyI got two emails about the ftw3 being in stock tonight, both useless of course
javelina1A little bit ago, I saw a Tuf pop up at Newegg. So I said why not... had it in the cart, went to check out, and it was gone.... :-)
GNielsonLikewise, and the odd thing is, apparently they were gone so fast that nowinstock didn't see anything, as the apparent last Newegg "in stock" doesn't show up in the nowinstock history.
FeklarAnd people are buying them from scalpers because only they have them to sell. Vicious cycle isn't it.
gaboltonEbay and Amazon are the only places I've seen scalpers. Release day I saw a 3080 listed on Amazon for $2300+. Since then I've seen the 3rd party sellers slowly dropping the prices. The cheapest I've seen was $1199.
gaboltonAgreed. I've thought about offering $699.99 on every one that's posted.
jpotterI was sitting at my PC and distill didn't go off. I didn't even have a chance. I know there are tons of sob stories here, but I have literally been seeking at least 12 hours a day since the 17th. I have had cards in cart multiple times and can not complete payment without them being taken out 90% of the time. I've even had two orders voided after purchase. This is beyond a doubt the hardest thing I have ever tried to purchase in my life. Edited for clarity. I'm not trying to buy multiple cards, just one.
